The Vice President spoke at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC, an annual gathering which draws conservative Christians from around the country.

"If you look at the last year and a half, this is the most pro-life administration in American history," continued Pence.

Pence pledged to "fight until we repeal the Johnson Amendment once and for all."

"Promoting religious freedom is a foreign policy priority of this administration," said the Vice President... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here.
